Mom knows best! Bachelor alum Amanda Stanton revealed why her 6-year-old daughter, Kinsley, has a cell phone — and it’s not all for fun and games.

“She visits with her dad and I like to be able to call and FaceTime her and Charlie without having to call him,” the reality star, 28, explained during an Instagram Q&A on Monday, November 26. “She knows she can always call me if she needs anything.”

The California native — who is also mom to 4-year-old daughter, Charlie, with ex-husband Nick Buonfiglio — added: “I limit her time on it at home. Otherwise she’d watch YouTube 24/7.”

As for another commenter who asked “how strict” Stanton will be when her girls are teenagers, the Bachelor in Paradise star revealed, “I struggle with this!”

“I know I want to let them be themselves and experience life and not be too overbearing. But I’m terrified,” she added. “I don’t ever want them to drive!!!!! I’ll drive them around til they’re 30. It scares the crap out of me. So we’ll see.”

Stanton made headlines earlier this year when she was arrested on one count of battery domestic violence in Las Vegas after an alleged altercation with her boyfriend, Bobby Jacobs.

The two have seemingly gotten past the rough patch and have remained together. Prior to her relationship with Jacobs, Stanton appeared on Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor in which she finished third runner-up.

Stanton went on to be a part of the season 3 of Bachelor in Paradise cast where she ultimately got engaged ex Josh Murray. The two split in December 2016 and Stanton went on to date Robby Hayes during season 4 of the hit ABC reality show.
